Do you have a job or you want one in the future which requires you to speak excellent levels of English? Do you know English grammar but still get confused by certain more complicated rules? Then this course if for you!

This course if for people who can already speak English but would like to improve their knowledge of the language and who want to improve their English for professional life. It’s specifically designed for those who want to improve speaking and writing in the workplace.

During the Workshop, you will learn how to speak and write in English in a professional way. The course will allow you to move to the next level in your knowledge of English!

Why is this course in Amsterdam? Because we are tThe Netherlands Education Group and a large part of our courses are based in Amsterdam. This is not, however, the only reason! The Netherlands is the country with one of the highest levels of English proficiency in countries where English is not the official language. Furthermore, Amsterdam is one of the most international cities in the world, where you can meet people from almost every country. We believe this is a perfect environment for adjusting to using English in a professional way.

In today’s globalised world, a good knowledge of English is becoming increasingly necessary. In particular, many companies now require a good level of English for you to work for them. Often a lack of English proficiency can be a hurdle which stops many people developing in their careers. At the same time, it’s often difficult to find the right course in a short period of time which offers a genuine improvement to your professional communication skills. This course is designed for busy people who have less than a week to improve their English proficiency.

This is no regular English language course! It’s an intensive workshop which aims at significantly improving your communicational skills. Communication is often the hardest part of any language and speaking and writing are perhaps the hardest parts of English. It is a core part of our educational philosophy that each student requires individual attention in order to improve. Moreover, different students make different mistakes at different times and therefore need to be catered to as individuals. This workshop is aimed at small groups where each member can receive personal attention from a tutour and will be given personalised feedback and recommendations to improve their own English, not for the group as a whole. This workshop is designed to target key shortcomings in the student’s English skills and to then help them improve on it.

Having great communication skills in English is perfect to leave a good impression on colleagues and partners. Candidates with better English certainly stand out against those who have worse English at a job interview. Professional English communication skills are vital to improving career perspectives.

The workshop will allow you to find out any problems with your English skills and will help you improve your professional communication in English. Your speaking and writing will become better and more professional and by the end of it, you will feel much more confident in your ability. You will begin to understand the smaller details and maybe..just MAYBE you’ll begin to understand British humour.

If you can’t get your dream job in your dream country because your English isn’t good enough, then join our course today and get the green light to your future career in an international organisation.

And become more successful and productive in professional and personal life? Then we invite you to join our Youth Entrepreneurship Workshop which will take place from 23d to 28th September 2018 in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

We invite young leaders who wish to contribute to their communities to join the workshop and learn more about youth entrepreneurship. Young leaders will be offered workshops to introduce them to various aspects of the topic with the special emphasis on how to move from theory to practice in the field of youth entrepreneurship. You will also learn how to realize your own potential as a young entrepreneur.

Development of youth entrepreneurship is an effective way to contribute to the economic development of the community! Young people – young leaders – are the key mechanism for such development. The Workshop will allow you to unlock your entrepreneurial potential as a young leader.

During the course each person will go through a series of assessments in order to understand what are the issues not allowing him/her to be effective at work or personal life. After those assessments the results will be analysed and each person will receive their individual recommendations on how they could become more effective!

Visa

We provide a visa invitation for the visa to the Netherlands. Please note – visa invitation is not a visa – with the invitation that we will send, you will still need to go to the closest Dutch Consulate and apply for a visa.
Together with the visa invitation you will need to provide other documents – usually those documents include passport, passport size photo, filled application form, insurance, proof of means, proof of work/study and other documents. The list of the documents might slightly differ depending on the country where you apply for a visa. Please check the website of the closest Dutch Consulate to see what is the list of the documents you need to prepare.

In most of cases before applying for a visa you need to make an appointment at the Consulate. Some times you can only make an appointment 1-2 months in advance. We recommend you to contact the Consulate as soon as possible to make an appointment.
The fee for the visa might differ depending on the country where you apply – you might have your visa free of charge or might need to pay for it 35 or 60 euro. Those are the fees in case you apply for a visa directly at the Consulate. If you apply via Visa Center of the Dutch Consulate, Visa Center, Travel agency or another organization – those organizations might charge extra fees for their services.

If you submit all the requested documents on time the chance for the rejection of a visa is very small. In our experience the visas are mostly rejected if an applicant provides false information to the Consulate. This could be the major reason for rejections. We kindly ask you to check the documents before the application and make sure you only provide the correct information to the Consulate and in that case you most probably will receive a visa without any difficulties.

And of course if you have any questions regarding the visa application procedure we would be happy to assist at any stage of your application!
